I want to back up an entire Server running Solaris 8, using ufsdump.

Is there a command I can use which will do all files systems & copy them to tape (/dev/rmt/0) or is it necessary to do them individually?

To  dump the entire server you must dump each file system separately.

To stack the output on a single tape use the "norewind" device /dev/rmt/0n for the second and all subsequent filesystems.

During restore use "mt ... fsf ..." to position.
